Mystic Marijuana: Full Moon in Gemini

Seeing the moon’s fullest face under my sun sign of Gemini has brought a new spark in a slow-burning candle of long-term personal and artistic goals. By nature, I am a person focused on the long-term—I tend to the garden of my life with care, always planting seeds for one plant while watering another, and harvesting yet another. This method, paired with the whimsical nature of Gemini’s, means that about things that matter to me—my heart, my art, my body, my communities....my destiny—I have a clear vision of where it is I want to end up, or rather, what feelings I want to arrive at.

Dreaming under this full moon in Gemini, I hear very loudly the echoes of my quietest childhood daydreams. It is easy to be coerced off your highest path, a road filled with precious jewels hidden in a jungle of mysterious darkness, and tricked into taking the neon-lit path of convenience, stifled curiosity, and veiled misery. But as womxn of the moon and incarnations of our ancestors, we are not so easily jaded or defeated to abandon our purpose.

{As a Black womxn. As a Black womxnist. As an empath. As an artist. As a healer. As a social connector.} It is more times than not draining to look at the “realities” that others have created and forced upon me. It is hard to fight the feeling of defeat in comparing resources of a small, BIWOC business to a corporation. It is maddening to know those same resources came from my ancestors’ minds and vaginas. I could choose to feel vindictive toward love, bristle from old wounds, and refuse to let others love me. However, we all have to decide if we are to be scared by “reality” and settle into a lesser position than we should, sink into the righteous, though uncreative energy of becoming bitter, or stay open in our hearts, minds, and bodies to our own UNIQUE, ETERNAL, INTUITIVE POWER.

Recently, I have been undergoing massive shifts in all aspects of my life—from stepping into a new career, re-locating cities, becoming a godmother, living in love, and taking on new creative and business endeavors. Usually, I feel overwhelmed when I feel everything stable coming loose from underneath me, however over the past couple months I have been steadily repeating the words:

“LOVE + SMOOTH TRANSITIONS ”

This is to remind myself to stay open and grateful for all that’s in my life and heart, and in transition to be grateful for everything leaving me and everything coming to me.

Under this full moon in Gemini , I am reminded that I am already worthy of everything coming. I am encouraged to stay open in my heart and be flexible to adventure and any “detours” on my journey. Under this lunar glow I understand that when I love myself and let other people really love me, I open myself to an even greater love from the universe. When I trust my ideas and execution, I see myself in the pure vision of my childhood dreams and my highest soul callings.

To be in transition can make us want to retreat toward comfort, toward small ways of the past. However, I encourage us all to enter Sagittarius season with a burning heart of love and bravery, rather than huddle around a dying flame of the past. Trust that what’s in your heart will guide you and do not cripple yourself by doubting your intuition and creativity. You are worthy of the oceans of change washing upon you.

Love + Smooth Transitions,

Mystic Marijuana: New Moon in Scorpio

Scorpio energy contains an inaccessible lair, hiding our wildest side, a shadow trotting behind us full of mystery. In hindsight, we ask for a close-up on a dangerous, dense adventure. The only warning however, is theft of ancient domains because they (the colonial enterprise) fear the dark cocoon of grief and love inside us all—a quiet ache swelling up a raw force during this new moon.

Like my Tita says, eat all the bruised fruits to consume the most nutritional benefits. In those terms, ‘first world’ habits towards our untamed closeted traditions are to eat only the perfect fruits. Society manically disorganizes our power for they’re trying to eat our durability. Yes, our durability is weighted with fragility, if so we break, echoes of ancient memory—healers, priestesses, ritualists, herbalists, and mediators between realms—ring our corridor of history, awakening our core like a distant gong. Our intentions this month drastically ripple and flood a watery grave as earth’s poisons perish.

Scorpio season will keep us alive at twilight, refreshed by the cooling effects of the oncoming occultism. We get stronger when we value our bodies and minds. We don’t get stronger for the sake of being independent—we, who are many, get stronger when we learn about our heritage and give birth to children. This is the reckoning they will see. We get stronger when we are willing to do what is necessary. Below are mantras so you may experience a blissful surrealism of ancestral remedy during this time of complex emotions and demands for rapid acclimation to bounce back from any disparity or find means to support yourself. Most importantly take care of your body, which will take care of your ancestors.


Scorpio Mantra: 

I give my body permission to lead and guide 

My body is mine and mine alone 

My body dances with wholeness 

I tune into a rhythm, only my body can feel and hear

Mystic Marijuana: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo

If you haven’t tasted a year’s worth of honey, a bottle of natural nectar collected from late winter-early spring is lighter in color and less complex in flavor, than a summer’s thick, sticky golden harvest. It’s easy for bees to stay active in hotter temperatures, therefore honey in the summer tends to be even more delicious, since they work twice as hard. Similar to how everyone else spends their length of solstice, theres an increase in movement and pleasure for all beings.

The sun is designed for our spiritual growth, and causes us to experience a great deal of expansiveness. Irritation from the bloody heat can distract us and the sun’s rays of light can pull us in so many places emotionally. We are so dictated by the sun, keeping us awake and losing sleep, causing us to feel deprived of moon substance. A major point that we shouldn’t miss is that life opens up during the summer, to offer new directions. We can become something bigger than our own individual life, because there’s  plenty to do/see/explore on brighter days!

When it’s cold we don’t feel as free, similar to bees who have to travel to get what they need. Bees huddle close together during hibernation, creating a nest full of vibration to keep wisdom warm. Our sun streamlines mass pollination for bees alongside exceeding interactions amongst be-ings, raising our bar of confidence to bring ourselves and our aspirations forward in the world. Real honey is like our pot of purpose, its going to be an extra climb to have it, but it’ll always be fortifying, a sweetness that truly never spoils!

Today’s new moon in Leo shares this notion that we can easily bruise from the sun as much as the sun fills us with joy. Meaning, everything negative and positive will continue to grow evenly. The sun cannot pick what to weed out. It is up to the protectors of the earth to decide what flourishes. Notice how bees manage, direct, and invest their energy to what matters most to them. Bees search for multiple flowers of knowledge to assist earth and earthly beings with seasonal lessons, one fragile bloom at a time. So we must follow that same buzz.  

What the bees, sun, and flowers all have in common is they all carry a high frequency. Higher frequencies are tools to our ascenscion. This solar eclipse, new moon in Leo is helping us move up. The sun’s DNA transmits high vibrational downloads for higher awakening; many of us could run into trauma and/or pain because receiving high frequency energies purges that which is of a lower frequency. Also, my own divine theory is that since western minds usually personify the sun as male, maybe bees are the sun’s female counterparts, responsible for earth’s exuberance, relying on its fragrance and spectrum of flowers. The aroma of flowers help bees pollinate, producing tons of food we eat that also have high frequency energies. It is no wonder bees are attracted to flowers of high frequency, because flowers soak up the vibration of the sun and are also stuck in earth absorbing its vibration too. Bees know exactly what they need to move forward, in terms of spiritual growth.

We can do the same action as bees, especially with the benefits of essential oils, inhaling the flower/plant’s high frequencies.

Mystic Marijuana: Full Moon in Capricorn

During these next few weeks a ruling energy holds us tight and doesn’t let us get up until we ground down our emotions and root our goals so we can stand in a sophisticated position. Perhaps you have already arrived at a situation where you have been challenged to take a serious, reserved, or mature attitude. It’s not as easy as it sounds—growing up and killing a part of you in order to act in a new way. Dealing with moving into well-versed beings, communicating our emotions, and testing our skills in a professional setting is a presentation that mirrors our bloom in an exceptional field of endeavors. We evolve to this ambitious plane, a place of being on some big boy shit, your highest self, to actually achieve goals and make difficult and important decisions. If we try to aim high we have to walk the entire surface of discipline, no useless reactions. 

Pessimism could get in the way, under this strawberry full moon in Capricorn. Feeling extra overwhelmed at the magnitude of taking on or doing something as your grown self. If you do feel like you lack an agenda or have been bitten by a bigger dog, the moon is trying to help you move in the other direction. To put that to a close, and usher in a new idea, project, or behavior. Our sun facing the moon always highlights our opposing forces: what I should be doing vs what I am actually doing. This is a serious time, we may feel stuck or may have had an intuition thats trying to tell us how to begin but we still can't clearly see which direction to go. Full moons speak to previous new moons. Have you reflected on what just happened? On any manifestations in actions? Clouds with no silver lining? Excessive worrying getting in the way of believing that you have endless potential of success? If you have been tackling these questions, in the next few weeks, achievements begin to pay off. 

Full moons mean something needs to be ended, acknowledged, or adjusted, and Capricorn's energy directs us to complete something we've worked really hard on. Task master, UK artist, Skepta always comes through executing everyone with his style and unstoppable hustle. I've added an essential Skepta playlist below to remind us that our ancestral baggage can be transmuted because our ability to conquer challenges is limitless.
